Botswana with Darren Rees
Show Notes

The world famous Okavango Delta, Chobe National Park, Moremi Reserve and Kalahari Desert. Join our guide Darren Rees for African big game viewing at its very best and a bird list as long as your arm. In this episode he speaks with guests Jane and Pam - Jane returning for the second time (because it is that good) and Pam on her first African holiday.  This episode is littered with the phrase "We haven't mentioned......" as memories flood back and the wildlife was overwhelming at times. As Jane says, "Botswana never feels crowded and at times like you have Africa all to yourself".

Breaking her golden rule of not going back to the same place twice, our guest Jane sums this holiday up perfectly, "For me it's like stepping into a real life Lion King, it's just absolutely magical. I love the sunsets and the big animals, the birds and the atmosphere and this holiday takes you into so many different places and wilderness.... it's just wonderful."

For Pam, this being her first African holiday she has her first wild elephant encounters and monkeys along with a huge array of other species, not forgetting over 150 species of bird.

Botswana delivers magnificent sunsets, emotional animal encounters and apparently "The best G&T location"!
